Holidays wishes from yours truly. I hope everyone can enjoy this day with family and loved ones. Though I’m not with mine now I’m not going to let that get me down.
This is a tough time of year for an ex-pat without a family in a foreign land far from those with whom he’d usually spend this holiday. I still have many things for which to be thankful. I have my health. I have friends and the wherewithal to maintain these precious relationships. I have talent and the inclination to share it. I have food (though none of the ones found on a thanksgiving menu) clothing and shelter. I have a (mostly) good heart and a (sorta) sound mind.
And I have this incredible life I’m leading and the presence of mind to fully appreciate how I’m benefiting from it.
Peace and blessings to you all
